  • I never thought about WHERE my handbags sits before. Very interesting!

    I’ve always tried on a bag while looking in the mirror, so perhaps I knew some of these tips instinctively, but it is useful to hear them reasoned out like this. I am small busted and like a cross-body bag that sits at “just the right length.” Now I have a better idea where that perfect length is and why some bags just don’t work.


  • Interesting as always, but where I live, the risk of being robbed in the street is really high, so I can’t afford to decide these things from an esthetic point of view and have to put safety first. Which usually means to wear a cross-body-bag underneath my arm or a backpack in front of me. Not very flattering. Sigh.

    • Wow – I’ve never consciously thought about the position of a bag but it really does make a difference to the overall image. Like Sonja I have to think about safety – I travel a lot to places with thriving pickpocket cultures. I’ve started using a “healthy back” bag for casual wear and business travel. It’s quite versatile – you can push it back, hug it with your elbow or sling it across your body as the security situation dictates. http://www.thehealthybackbag.co.uk/ – although not as elegant as some of the bags that Imogen was showing.
